I have a fairly widely diversified practice, in terms of doing quite a bit of aesthetic plastic surgery plus reconstructive. The main role at Rush here is to do breast reconstruction. As soon as the general surgeon finishes his or her portion of the surgery, then I’ll come in to provide the reconstruction.
Some people come to me for facial rejuvenation. And as time passes, the facial structures settle, facial volumes change, facial motions change. So you have to analyze all those different things in order to get the right answer.
I think the biggest focus of my patients when they come to me is that they want to make sure that they have a highly natural result. So that’s a big component of the practice. We’re also extremely individualized. I don’t think you can run a cookie- cutter practice in plastic surgery because each patient is their own particular person. They have different goals, and they require different solutions.
